The Canyon Independent School District will be holding a special election on May 7th.
The Place 1 seat became vacant last August when former member Bruce Cobb resigned. By law, an election must be held within 180 days from that resignation.
Claudia Burkett was appointed by the board with more than one year remaining for the Place One term and the district is required to hold a special election for the seat.
If Burkett is unopposed for the election, the election would be withdrawn.
Numerous requirements have to be met, including they must be a registered voter in Randall County.
You can find the candidates paperwork on the Texas Secretary of States website, or contact the Canyon ISD Support Center at 806-677-2600
